FilzFineFelt's Shop Announcement

FilzFineFelt creates luxurious fashion accessories and garments for women who care about the world they live in... http://www.finefelt.net

All garments are handmade luxury items, produced with a high level of detail. Many garments are hand embroidered and no item leaves the studio until Filz is completely satisfied with its finish and design. Filz doesn’t make garments to sell, instead Filz aims to maintain a self sustaining business that will allow ongoing creative explorations. Filz endeavours to generate unique and timeless creations which will be viewed as objects of style and beauty, bringing pleasure to all who behold and wear them.

Unless otherwise stated, Filz uses where possible organic wool. The materials are often left in their natural colour, eliminating the need for dyes which is, without a doubt, the most environmental responsible approach. However sometimes dyes are used in the form of low impact acid dyes. Because they do not need a toxic mordant, I prefer these over the natural ones.

The shop is divided into 2 sections: Winter Warm and Summer Cool. The sections, refer to the weight of the garment.

Winter Warm items are thicker and heavier and are ideal for keeping you warm in winter.

Summer Cool garments are usually created using 'nuno felting', a technique for combining a very thin layer of felt with silk fabric. They are light as a feather.
Sometimes they are made from cobweb felt which is very thin, often see through, felted wool.
They are ideal in combination with evening or smart casual wear, protecting you from the cool breeze on summer nights or air conditioned environments.
